First a good short movie by Progressive economists ECON 4. They say that the country's budget deficit is NOT an important economic problem. The main economic problem is widespread UNEMPLOYMENT, and increased government spending should be part of the cure. Politicians of both parties are lying. Then KD reviews a scathing and very funny book with first-hand details of how the State Department botched Iraq reconstruction--written by a foreign service officer on the scene who helped botch it.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Executive Dining Room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
The book is "We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People," by Peter Van Buren (Metropolitan Books, 2011).
